You know that Trump is doing everything he can to destroy the US Postal service ahead of the election, from hiring an ignorant crony as postmaster general, to removing postal mailboxes, to intentionally slowing down the mail. But the Postal Service is enshrined in the US Constitution, and there are some quick and easy thing you can do to help save the US Postal Service.


Check out San Francisco’s “Fountain Lady” Ruth Asawa is one of the many cool new sheets of stamps that can be yours for a measly $11. They will eventually be useful for something, or you might eventually just lost them. But hey you’re helping keep the Post Office afloat in its time of extreme need! 

You can also buy plenty of sweet USPS merchandise in their online store. They have beach towels! They have a Marvin Gaye postage stamp poster! They have a mail carrier costume for your dog! Or for your toddler or child, so they don’t have to grow up in Donald Trump’s America!


The House of Representatives passed a $25 billion postal service aid bill last weekend, but the Republican-controlled Senate is sitting on it and not doing anything. But you can pressure senators to act with phone calls and emails.

Your California senators are of course Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris. But there’s nothing stopping you from haranguing other senators too. Here’s a complete list of US senators’ addresses, phone numbers, and contact information.


Look at the rich white assholes who sit on the USPS Board of Governors. Now write to them, as their business addresses and email addresses are all listed in the graphic above. (Click on the image for a better look at the text and information.)

In fact, maybe you should both email and snail mail them. Because the way they’re fucking this thing up, the snail mail might not get there by November 3.
